you really should focus the list a little - no one is "expert" in more than a few fields

if you want programmers, you really want Programmers - not generalist hardware engineers that can hack - the leverage from deep knowedge of current software technologies can only be maintained by continuous focus on programming as a full time profession - and there are still many subspecialties

likewise an experienced analog designer probably won't be "expert" in audio, switching supplies and "wireless" (which?)

anyone having close to those qualifications doesn't need your job - he is a company

He's looking for Henry, from Eureka.

Thanks for your comments. There are electrical engineers out there who specialize in consumer audio products design and have the ability to design most if not all of the electrical hardware employed in the product. I know a couple and they're gainfully employed. We're seeking such a person for this position.

Try contacting member 'audioman54' (formerly at National Semi and was let go a year or two ago and was having trouble finding a new job)

jkeny 9th March 2011 11:48 PM

Wow, from Aurasounds news stories " For the three month period ending December 31, 2010 net revenue was a record US$27.2 million versus US$1.8 million the same period the prior year, an increase of 1,423%" This is fantasttic - what is this down to - no information in the news story?

Yeah, MB immediately came to my mind as well.

another reason you need to think through the position description is what if you found this polymath - if you want to get product out to meet market time/opportunity windows in consumer tech products you really need many of those functions running parallel with full time staffing

no one can work 160 hrs a week - what are the two-three most important things this person needs to get done

do you want a project manager?
"hands on" team leader with just a few direct design responsibilities?
"systems integrator" to just plug datasheet/demo board app circuits together?

Found this on Yahoo finance :

Revenue
Net revenue increased from $1,278,900 to $10,971,201, an increase $9,692,301 or 758% compared to the same prior year period. The increase in net revenue for the current period has primarily been the result of: The acquisition of the net assets and liabilities of ASI Holdings Limited ("ASI Holdings") along with improved relationships with existing AuraSound customers that resulted in a significant increase in revenue per customer.

Gross Profit
Cost of sales for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $9,771,021 as compared to cost of sales of $1,211,353 for the three months ended September 30, 2009. Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $1,200,180 compared to $67,547 during the prior year period. The increase in gross profit is primarily due to the acquisition of the net assets and liabilities of ASI Holdings.

There are a few of us around that can do just about all of the hardware functions on your list. I will have to agree that such an engineer is rare, and if they are truly competent at all of the hardware disciplines listed, they are not going to be a DSP programmer, at least not a good one. I work in a facility that designs cell phones and two way radios.

Think about it. A cell phone contains an RF modem (or 2 or 3) a microprocessor, a DSP, bidirectional audio streams that must be shielded from digital niose and pulsating RF, stereo audio playback, video playback and capture capability on an LCD screen, Bluetooth (and iRDA on older phones). All of it is powered by multiple SMPS's, must fit in the palm of your hand, run for a day or more on a tiny battery, and pass some of the most stringent FCC and carrier certification on the planet.

Many of the younger engineers are specialized on a small area of the phone, but there is at least one "master of all" on each phone design program. Since phone design has moved offshore, hundreds of good phone designers have been cut loose in the last few years. Get your job posted where it can be read in Fort Lauderdale/Miami, San Diego, Chicago and Dallas/Ft.Worth.
